How it works

Wireless charging, or inductive charging, is way more convenient than conventional methods of recharging your devices but you still need a separate wireless charger. The way it works is that the wireless charger is plugged into the mains and the smartphone is placed on top of the charger’s base. The charger emits an alternating current via a transmitter coil which creates a voltage in the receiver coil found in the device.

Convenience

This might sound like a fad because the benefits at home aren’t all that great but when you’re in an office, you can have an area that users put their works smartphones to recharge thanks to this technology. Fast food chains and others on the high street are also taking advantage of this new tech. You can already recharge your device in 50 McDonald’s across the land and Starbucks are currently offering wireless charging in 10 of their outlets.

Smartphone charging

Phones like the latest generation Xperia Z3 have the capability to be charged wirelessly. In order to find out if your phone can do this, you’ll need to find out if it’s a QI certified device. The Samsung Galaxy 6 is another device that can be charged this way. Other QI enabled phones include the Blackberry Z30, Google Nexus 4, iPhone 4 and 4S, HTC Droid DNA, Nokia Lumia 920 and the LG G3 among others.
